MY LIST OF COLLECTIONS
I've been working on building the perfect list of collections to categorize all my future posts. Just now I performed what I hope is my final revision. The list needs to be specific enough that viewers can shut off categories they don't want, but it also needs to avoid becoming so specific as to be gratuitous (relative to my posting habits, anyway). It's a delicate balancing act. (expand)

Another issue comes in the fact that I struggle with the idea of segregating my Christian posts from others. My faith lies at the core of who I am, and Christians are also commanded by God to be a voice for him. I came, I think, to a decent compromise: appropriate collections have a "(for Christians)" tag on them. This means that the posts in these collections would probably be of interest only to Christians. But I'm still free to make Christian posts elsewhere if I think they should be seen by everyone, including non-Christians. That's the difference between a "(for Christians)" tag and a "(Christian)" tag! :D

I'd like every post of mine to now be in a collection.

Regarding collections, at first I thought, "Someone should take all of me or none of me." But then, upon further reflection, this began to seem selfish and maybe even needy. Social networking is not real life, and even in real life there are times when you should segregate your communications. There are certain things, for example, that you don't bring up at work or around certain people. This is because you know they don't want to hear it and it's just going to cause division. So, with these things in mind, it seems appropriate to begin using collections. And besides, I always love making lists and categories!

What follows is my list of collections so far. It might be further revised. Of course, if I start making a lot of posts about something very specific under one of these categories then I would make a new collection for it (and any other newly needed collections besides).

I was also looking at it as a bit of an opportunity to post things I normally don't. I would like to post my favorite songs on any given evening's playlist, but I know that most of the people in my circles just wouldn't care and I don't want to flood their stream. Now I can post them and the people who don't like it can just opt out.

This is stunning. Bohemian Rhapsody on a 1905 85 key programmable organ.

This evening begins the 50th day of the counting of the sheaf. It is the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot), also known in the New Testament as Pentecost. Weeks commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai, and acted as a prophecy toward the giving of the Holy Spirit (the Ten Commandments in our hearts) at the Pentecost event.

I heard this song today for the first time in years. I have not been able to release it from my heart. I can't remember the last time a song so deeply resonated with me. Right now, this selection is certainly the narration of my life.

I decided to write up an introduction to the adventure game genre. More people need to know about it these days.

Telltale, I should note, does have some modern, 3D comedy adventures that are more traditional in format: the Sam & Max and Monkey Island games. (Not their originals from the 90's, but their modern continuations.)

The new moon has been sighted in Yisrael! The third Biblical Hebrew month begins this evening, and officially on the 20th. The Feast of Weeks/Pentecost is this Sunday on the 24th.

Just attended my second wedding in Final Fantasy 14! I returned from my break just to attend it. It was a lovely ceremony between two lalafell (tiny cupid-like humans). Making the occasion all the sweeter was that the two players were already married in real life. :)

Congratulations +Rebecca Goodrich and +Jeremy Goodrich!

(I had to show up as a lv.1 character in lv.1 gear because the wedding happened on a different server than my own. But I managed to reproduce my character Vespin Feebler almost perfectly. Only his hair wasn't quite the right color.)

I'm computer-dependent enough, and a social networking addict, WITHOUT a smartphone. I can't even imagine what I'd be like WITH one. Also, my kids (whenever they show up) are simply not getting smartphones until they're 18. They need to learn how to be a human being first. I didn't even get my own PC until I was 16, and I think that was still too early.

"Daddy those movies [E4-6] were so awesome! Are there any more Star Wars movies?!"
"No, son. There aren't."
...well, possibly until later this year. Possibly.

James Spahn originally shared to Star Wars:
 
So, one of the things that erks me about the prequels is the casual use of Force Lightning. Dooku throws it around like it ain't no thang, as does Palpatine.

Yet, in Return of the Jedi, when the Emperor says to Luke "If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed," we see bolts of terrible energy leap from his fingers. We see just how corrupted the power of the Dark Side truly is and just how powerful this feeble old man really is. It is, for lack of a better pun, shocking. It feels wrong, like the Dark Side should. I was five the first time I saw Return of the Jedi and when that moment happened in the film I was like "Holy shit! He's really going to kill Luke Skywalker!" I was in awe and terror, shock and surprise, at the power of the Dark Side.

When one sees Episodes II and III before seeing Return of the Jedi it ruins that thematic element of the story. Instead of that terrible surprise, an audience member is like "Oh, OK - he's ring to do him like he did Mace Windu and Yoda. Cool."

It just damages the impact of that scene so much and its always bothered me a bit.

That "ball droid" or whatever in E7... is REAL. It is NOT CGI. Blew me away when I learned that.
Admit it: If Lucas made ep7, that droid would be CGI... and would fly... and the desert scenes would be in a blue-screen-ed sound stage.
